Borderline Personality Disorder Myth: People suffering from BPD tend to become stalkers.
People suffering from Borderline Personality Disorder usually don’t have interpersonal skills. They have this tendency of losing relationships, usually due to their extreme behaviors. Different studies have shown that 4 to 15 percent of stalkers suffer from BPD. It is important to keep in mind that some of these stalkers may meet criteria for Borderline Personality Disorder but stalking is not a characteristic of BPD. Only a few people suffering from BPD become stalkers.
